Abstract

Since the appearance of her first novel Die Züchtigung (1985), Waltraud Anna Mitgutsch has established herself as an important and insightful writer. Intended as an introduction to her work, comprising four novels so far, the essay discusses Mitgutsch's central themes of female "Entfremdung," "Ichlosigkeit," and "Sprachverlust," and analyzes her use of poetic language and narrative perspective. The essay complements the interview with Mitgutsch, in which she comments on her work and its reception, expresses her views on being a writer in Austria, addresses the questions of female vision and feminist aesthetics, and explains her artistic intentions and goals.
